Brilliant Blunders: An Interview with Dr. Mario Livio

Dr. Mario Livio

I had the rare chance to listen to Dr. Mario Livio speak at TEDx Midatlantic. His message was inspiring and interesting – check it out here.

After his speech, I met him in the hallway, grabbed coffee with Mario and his wonderful wife, and learned that he lives right around the corner from me.

Since then, I devoured his most recent New York Times best selling book, Brilliant Blunders. It’s excellent – grab your copy today!

I was delighted when he agreed to be on your Provoking Your Greatness podcast. While he shares many insights to instigating creativity and innovation, and also shared the top three strategies to reaching (and provoking) greatness. Here they are:

  1.     Stay Curious. We had some lively discussion on what it means to be curious, and how to stay curious.
  2.     Follow Your Curiosity. Listen in to learn more details on how to do this.
  3.     Invest in Your Interests. This is to say, feed your passion.
